In-Stat Report: Hosted IP Centrex Services Continue Steady Growth in Fragmented Space.
"As a result, we are seeing fragmentation in the hosted IP Centrex space where some providers give customers the tools to self-install and maintain services with web-based tools, while others are more proactive in addressing and managing front-end network integration issues and the long-term data and voice communications needs of multi-site businesses," says David Lemelin, In-Stat analyst. "In-Stat feels that there is ample opportunity for success in both scenarios, but it is difficult for any single provider to be all things to all customers and do so profitably."
Recent research by In-Stat found the following:
* Hosted IP Centrex seats in service will reach 6.5 million in the U.S. and 14.1 million worldwide by 2012.
* The government vertical sector has the highest penetration of hosted IP Centrex.
* The real estate industry fueled much of the growth in 2006 and 2007, but is now relatively stagnant.
* TDM Centrex seats will decline precipitously as local exchange carriers become more proactive in migrating customers to IP as a retention tool.
